Preferring small 400cc bikes and travels with minimal luggage (one 20 litre bag) light and fast.

Riding from Atar in Mauritania the warm up route would bring most riders to a cold sweat as the team cut south east through Chinguetti and Tidjikja. From there an 800km piste take the team to Tichit, Nema and finally through Dogon country to Timbuktu where the 'real riding begins'...

Pushing north from Timbuktu into the unridden empty western quarter of the Sahara the team will try to follow the only remaining ancient camel route still used over 1600km of sand dunes to the legendary town of Taoudenni. Rarely visited by westerners (and never by motorcycle from Timbuktu) the team will contend with tribal law and seas of sand as they battle their way north.

As with any good trip the expedition target will see the trip only halfway complete as the return trip to Timbuktu will continue to test both riders and machines.

As if this that wasn't enough the team have committed themselves to making, 'A Special Film', of the event and will be travelling with world reknowned film maker and director Austin Vince allowing him to record everything in a way that only he can...
